New York has established new quarantine rules for anyone who travels out of state to a state that does not border New York, or for anyone entering NYS from a state that does not border NYS. States that border NYS include Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, and Massachusetts. Anyone coming to New York from any other state must have a negative COVID test no later than 3 days prior to arriving in New York State, and must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in New York State. An individual may be released from quarantine if the individual takes a second COVID test at least 4 days after arrival in New York State and receives a negative result. To report an individual violating the travel advisory by not self-quarantining, please call 1-833-789-0470 or your local health department.
